Doomsday Prophet, Followers ‘Flabbergasted’ World Didn’t End

Harold Camping in 2008

From Yahoo News. I would really hate to be Harold Camping right now. Somehow he has to explain why everyone in his congregation is still here on Earth. I would hope he has a good explanation for Robert Fitzpatrick who spent $140,000 on advertising the upcoming Rapture.

I can’t feel too bad about Mr. Camping. It doesn’t look as if he was trying to defraud anyone. Apparently, he sincerely believed the End was at hand. If there is any lesson to learned here, it would be to study the Bible in context and don’t read things into scripture that aren’t there. The Bible nowhere gives a date for the end and Jesus explicitly said that no one could know except God.
